What we're doing.

Yukai is a robotics company which creates communication robots that are going to excite the world. In July 2005, we were honored to have been awarded the ‘Good Design Award’ with ‘BOCCO’, which lead to a tighter family-like bond among us.
Last year, we released ‘Qoobo’, a therapy robot with a cushioned tail. It gain much popularity and we received more than we expected through crowdfunding.
Besides making our own robots, we collaborate with other companies to develop products. Examples being, ‘necomimi’ and ‘teamLabHanger’.
There is only 20 of us in Yukai. Our team consists of engineers, designers, marketers, robotics researchers and other wonderful talents. We handle the whole production process, right from the drawing board to the assembly line.
Before launching into full production, we usually create prototypes using 3D printers and a CNC machine (Roland MDX-540).
For mass production, we partner up with factories and manufacturers both in Japan and overseas!

Why we're doing.

The name “Yukai” was taken from ‘The Founding Prospectus of SONY’. Our company was established to provide a place for engineers to gather and create products together.
A world where humans and robots communicate with each other is often premiered in Sci-Fi movies, but we have yet to see such a world become reality.
At Yukai, we believe that communication robots will be the main interface for the next generation. Robots are now able to greatly understand and support humans more than before. All this made possible by being connected to a series of networks and/or environmental sensors.
The world will experience a shift in the way information is delivered. No more typing on screens, but rather people will be able to give and receive information without knowing they are doing so!
Yukai endeavors to improve our daily lives by introducing communication robots to the world.
